There are many "haunted" and "spirit infested" homes here in the Granite State!   Blush I can personally attest. I have seen and heard things

that you would never believe. Most of the haunted homes, or even older government buildings have a very long history, going back 300+

years or more. As a commercial cleaning contractor, I had one account, a very old church/parish hall that sat by a river in Milford NH.

from day 1, all my employees who had worked there heard noises, footsteps, saw draws opening and closing by themselves, would all of

a sudden feel a strong gust of wind inside the building! Nobody would work there anymore. I finally let the account go.   Leaving

 

Anyhow getting to the Mt. Washington roadway, haven't been up there in a while myself, I believe because of safety reasons those rails

were installed years ago.

Scary.  Maybe Ghost Hunters can investigate. Seriously.  I love that show.

    Yeah same here, love and believe that paranormal stuff!    Crying

     

    I have one other account, a very large dental practice which my company has been cleaning for over 12 years. Coincidentally it's located

    in the same town (Milford), where the church/parish hall was haunted. A couple years back the owner (and one of the dentists), of this

    practice died in a tragic car accident. The practice still continues. Several times when I have gone in to inspect the completed work, usually

    in the evening, I have seen silhouettes of this former doctor floating down one of the hallways near his old office!!! It's not really scary

    for me to see that anymore, more like he's just part of the wood work. I would sometimes also feel the floors shaking for no apparent reason?

            I know for the Mega drawing there were 651 million tickets sold for the Friday drawing. Some stories were saying 1.45 billion tickets were sold but that was the total ticket sales for all the drawings since the jackpot started at 12 million and rolled 18 times.

                  If your referring to the dental practice, I believe it is nothing more than the good (deceased) doctor coming back to try and tie up some loose

                  ends. He fell asleep at the wheel before crashing his car into a tree, he died instantly. He never had any preparation for his next spiritual stage.

                  I was actually good friends with him, and since this practice was such a big part of his life I think he is trying to resolve his confusion by

                  occupying his old stomping grounds. Interesting story, I was in his old office actually doing the cleaning for one of my people on vacation that

                  week. Just as I was finishing up in his old office, the radio in the room suddenly came on, and it was blaring! At the same time the phone was ringing

                  off the hook. This was a Sunday evening around 9:00PM

                   

                  I consider him harmless, and do not feel there is anything else contributing to these events. He is probably just feeling very confused, and gravitated

                  back to one of the most familiar areas in his life.   Blue Angel

                   

                  I also believe some people are more spiritually in tune, and can communicate with others that have passed on. Call it a gift, or a curse?    Roll Eyes

                      Wow, the NASCAR guy(I remember him) who won 75 million playing Mega Millions has spent nearly 20 million dollars in three years! And it looks he won't slow down his extreme spending anytime soon.

                      No, Simba774, it appears that Joe Denette and his wife have slowed down their spending from the last 2.7 years, if now, due to their remaining principle and new investments they have approximately $25M-$30M remaining.  I don't know where Barbara Walters got her spending information from, as they've ONLY purchased about $8M worth of items.  The only way that Barbara could be correct if she is deducting from the Annuity amount of $75M, then subtracting for the lump-sum amount cost, then subtracting for apx. 35% Federal Income Taxes, then lastly subtracting for the 4% State Income Taxes. 

                      Regardless of Barbara's unmentioned mainly 'spending via taxes,' it appeared that the Denette Family are satisfied with their: Nascar Team, 6 ATVs, 2 Monster Buses, 6 vehicles, and 6 houses w/big playgrounds.  It also appears that the Denettes started at least one business where Joe's wife is paid weekly into her individual checking account -- and doesn't spend those monies ... appears to have planned this as her 'family's emergency account'.

                      The Denettes still appeared to be very happy.  Joe is apparently good at tracking their net worth; as he knew EXACTLY the range ($25M-$30M) that his family's accounts were at when Barbara Walters asked him!

                      I'm uplifted that Joe is glad that none of his family members need to pursue working a 'job' anymore!  Party

                      Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

                        The guy's name is Joe Denette. He split a $227 million MM jackpot (3-ways) drawn on May 1, 2009. The annuity as  $75.6 mil but he opted for the $47.8 million lump sum payout. After 25% fed taxes and 4% VA state taxes, he took home a little over $33 million. That still would have left him with an additional Fed tax liability of $4.78 million unless he found a way to mitigate this...and from what I observed on the 20/20 show it didn't seem like he opened up any kind of charitable trust or gave any to charity.

                        That said, he may only have about $9 million left (he mentioned on TV that he had almost 1/2 of it left) which doesn't seem possible.

                        A NASCAR team, 2 motor coaches, 6 homes and a bunch of toys! I don't think this guy will stop until he's broke. Sorry if I sound negative as I don't wish a financial melt down on anyone but his spending is out of control. Give him 2-3 more years and if he doesn't come to his senses or someone doesn't intervene(his wife had no control over the money) he will be broke.   

                        His attitude is very similar to the original interview they did on TLC with David Edwards (medieval collector/drug addict), not a care in the world and thinking his funds would never dwindle. No No Bash

                              Apparently the woman  (37 year old Mirlande Wilson), was the organizer of a lotto pool at McDonald's, where she collected $5 from the

                              participating co-workers for the Mega drawing on Friday. Mirlande is now claiming she went off and purchased a separate ticket on her own,

                              and that was the lone winning ticket. She wants to claim the lump sum winnings of over $105 million for herself only. Her co-workers are

                              furious, and are claiming she ripped them off.   Mad
